Garage and Shed burglaries often increase in the spring and summer as the weather improves and more people are in and out of their outbuildings. We would like to help people to help themselves and to protect their property and contents and would ask you to consider the following advice:
Sheds Outbuildings and Garages – Shut it, lock it, keep it
Garden sheds, outbuildings and garages packed with tools, machinery and other valuable equipment offer easy pickings to thieves.
Take the right precautions to help prevent becoming a victim of crime and reduce the risk of having your property stolen. Mark your property to improve your chances of getting it traced and returned to you if it is stolen.
Here’s how you can cut the risk of theft:
Use close shackle padlocks to secure sheds and install shed alarms and security lights
Close your garden gate and lock it from the inside
Always put tools and equipment away - items left outside could be stolen or used to help a thief break in
Disable lawn mowers and other large machinery when not in use and chain items together to a solid anchor point
Record details of your property (make, model, serial number and identifying marks) on the form overleaf and take photographs of items for easy identification
Register your valuables on the National Property Database www.immobilise.com
Security-mark your property using a UV pen or a forensic marking solution
The public also have a role to play by calling Humberside Police if they have information about people responsible for thefts or handling stolen goods. They should call 999 in an emergency, 101 in a non emergency or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
